My Soul to Steal by Rachel Vincent

My Soul to Steal (Soul Screamers, Book 4) by Rachel Vincent is the latest addition to the Soul Screamers series.  Kaylee Cavanaugh, female bean sidhe is trying to hold it all together.  While she is still recovering from her recent breakup with Nash, his ex-girlfriend and first love Sabine comes to town.  Kaylee is blindsided by the gorgeous and slightly creepy Sabine, who is very clear in her intention to win back Nash's heart.  Sabine is a mara--a being that feeds off the fear of others in the form of their nightmares. 

In the midst of Kaylee's troubles, teachers start dropping dead at school--in their sleep.  And the student body seems to have lost its collective mind.  On top of all this, Avari seems to have been possessing people around Kaylee in their sleep.  Sabine, Avari and the chaos can't all be a coincidence, can it?  Kaylee is faced with so many possibilities that she doesn't know where to turn or who to trust.  Can she turn to Nash even though she feels that she can't trust him?  Tod is always there for her, but he seems to be acting a little weird too, and she can't expose Emma to any more of Netherworld, can she?

My Soul to Steal (Soul Screamers, Book 4) shows Kaylee becoming more self-reliant and confident in her abilities.  She also has to learn to trust and accept help from others instead of trying to take everything on herself.  Nash is also maturing--his desperation in trying to win Kaylee back a clear sign that he is adhering to the straight and narrow.  All of the characters seem to  have matured since the first novel, My Soul to Take (Soul Screamers Book 1).  Okay, maybe not Sophie but somebody has to play the foil, right?  The books seem to be heading in a direction where Kaylee is learning how special she is, as both a girl and a bean sidhe.  I found this latest addition to be highly entertaining and I am eagerly anticipating the next installment.
